SCRIPTURE READING:
Luke 11:21-22

 “When a strong man, fully armed, guards his own house, his possessions are safe.22 But when someone stronger attacks and overpowers him, he takes away the armor in which the man trusted and divides up his plunder.

SIGNIFICANCE:
The LORD JESUS CHRIST is always greater and stronger than His strong enemy, Satan.

Dear Father, I rejoice that Jesus has always been (and will always be) Someone Stronger than the strong man, Satan! I praise Jesus that He is the omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient One, and that when He attacks and overpowers Satan, He takes away all that has protected Satan’s territory. I think of when You first declared to the serpent in Genesis 3:15 that Christ has divine authority over Satan: “And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head and you will strike his heel.” I also exalt Someone Stronger for what the Apostle Paul said about Him in Colossians 2:15, “And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.” I do not want to be under the influence of Satan (be one of his “possessions”) in any way. So, I again place every part of my life, and each of my family members, in the powerful hands of Someone Stronger. I pray that we and all other believers will live completely under His righteousness, love, majesty, justice, truth, authority and deliverance. I pray that Someone Stronger will overpower Satan’s forces that have evil influence over any people or situations throughout the world. May great numbers of those people receive Someone Stronger as their Savior, and may individuals, families, neighborhoods, cities, states, regions, people groups and nations come under Christ’s dominion. I ask these things in His mighty name, and for His glory. Amen.
